"We're here, we're healthy, we're hunting. We're home."

That's what comic actor Jay Leggett told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in 2010 while out on a hunting trip with a reporter to promote his documentary "To the Hunt: Deer Season in Tomahawk, Wisconsin" about the region's deer hunting culture.

On Saturday, the "In Living Color" actor died doing what he loved best, hunting in northern Wisconsin.

Leggett died after collapsing on the first day of deer season, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

He was 50.

Leggett's death is believed to be heart-related, but the coroner says the official cause of death is still pending.

The actor died at the family cabin in Tomahawk, Wis., where he grew up. Though Leggett lived in Los Angeles, he frequently returned to Tomahawk, where he filmed his 2010 documentary.

"It's my favorite place on earth," Leggett told the paper.

In addition to "In Living Color," Leggett appeared in "Ally McBeal" and "NYPD Blue." He also wrote and produced "Employee of the Month" and "Without a Paddle."

Sad to have died that young.

Yes it is, but I can't think of a better way to go than doing something you love in a place that you love.

Beats hell out of dying in a hospital after months or maybe years of strokes or God forbid cancer. I watched my mother and father go in just that manner.

That's true Woods, but I'd rather die doing something that I love in a place that I love when I'm in my 80's not my 50's. I do agree that dying with your boots on is the way to go.

Woodsie, I am 50 now, and could be shot while hunting, and die doing something I love, but somehow, that idea just has no really appeal for me. That alone, is not enough.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

When I was younger I used to say the best way to go would be to die in bed while engaged in amorous activities with a gorgeous redhead. Now that I'm 60, those days are past, and after having come close a couple of times, I believe I'd just prefer to die in my sleep.

If I had a say in it all, I would want to die before my wife. I cannot imagine waking up in the morning without her. And please, please do not let me out live my children.

Ditto on that Ohio. My parents had to bury my younger brother and as a parent I cannot imagine anything more awful than that.

That is most sad. My parents buried my 7 yr old sister. They were never truly the same.
